We have taken 2 days to see everything in the zoo because it is so big, which is surprising because it is FREE! The zoo is on the north side of Chapultepec park, and it utilizes a lot of the natural scenery in the habitats....More

Nice to visit the zoo. Especially the butterfly jungle. Some animals have smaller/basic caves that used for these kinds of animals on many European zoo’s.
